<backpat>Speaking of Rahm's sordid history, I produced a short film for Chicago Independent Television entitled "Rahm's Sordid History".</backpat> The film is online here:
Funny you mention TIF movies. Here's a movie I made about TIFs for an episode of Chicago Independent Television back in 2010. This video, unlike the drek the city spews out about TIFs, is actually informative and true:
Chicago political activists involved with organizing protests against the G8 and NATO summits, scheduled for Chicago in May 2012, have also tried to meet with Emanuel and his staff, but they were met with stone-cold silence. Ditto that for Occupy Chicago, who have asked Emanuel to attend one of their General Assemblies, but he has yet to respond. I guess Rahm is too busy fellating fatcat corporate types.
Neat fact: The longest anagram you can make from the letters in the word "Rahm" is "harm".
The hearing and the public commentary therein was the focus of a Chicago Media Action report, posted online here:
